We all deal with conflicts that arise because of sinfulness. In this episode, we are looking at the three passages of scripture that give us direct instruction on working through issues of sin. We will learn that our main objective in going to the person who has sinned is to bring correction and then restoration. We will also have a discussion on when sinful actions, attitudes, or words could be overlooked, or when sinful issues should be dealt with and addressed.
The basic objectives in dealing with sin: 1) Correction and 2) Restoration
Correction: Bring about repentance and grant the sinning brother forgiveness.
Restoration: The goal is to win your brother (restore him).
When a person chooses to overlook a transgression, they may be deciding to choose their battles wisely.
When a person hides from confrontation, they may be missing an opportunity for biblical reconciliation.
The Lord will reveal areas of sin through: someone else speaking, devotional time, friendly conversation; often without a confrontational or counseling type setting.
